SAO PAULO, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On June 4, 2014, JBS S.A. ("JBS") announced that it has terminated its previously announced cash tender offers (the "Tender Offers") and related solicitations of consents (the "Consent Solicitations") for (i) any and all of the outstanding US$300,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 10.50% Senior Notes due 2016 of JBS and JBS Finance Ltd. (the "2016 Notes") and (ii) any and all of its outstanding US$350,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 10.25% Senior Notes due 2016 (together with the 2016 Notes, the "Notes").

Each Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation was subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated May 28, 2014, and the related Letter of Transmittal and Consent, which contain detailed information concerning the terms of the tender offers and the consent solicitations (together, the "Offer Documents").  These conditions included, among others, the consummation of a new offering of senior unsecured notes by JBS USA, LLC and JBS USA Finance, Inc., each a subsidiary of JBS (the "New Offering"). 

As a result of the termination, none of the Notes that have been tendered in the Tender Offer will be accepted for purchase and no consideration will be paid or become payable to holders of Notes who have tendered their Notes in the Tender Offer.  All Notes previously tendered and not withdrawn will be promptly returned or credited back to their respective holders.  All consents previously delivered and not revoked will be of no effect, and the indentures governing the Notes will remain in their present form, unamended.

The Tender Offers and Consent Solicitations are being terminated because the New Offering has been postponed.   JBS reserves the right to initiate a new tender offer and consent solicitation for the Notes at a later date, but it is under no obligation to do so.

This press release confirms formal termination of the Tender Offers and Consent Solicitations
